My Time Again Lyrics

My Daddy he were just a boy when he walked outta

His Mammy said there'd soon be one more hungry mouth to

He said 'the learnin' and the schoolin' wurnae bad for
them that could,

Tho' I can read & write my bloody name & sign it where
I should',

And he said..

'If I had my time again, I know I'd be a learned man,

An artisan in high demand, a Doctor or a Teacher,

As sure as guns are made of iron, I were born a workin

I'd live & die right where I stand if I'd my time

He went wide eyed down tae Johnny Brown, he were a big
lad for his years,

And there he worked so long if he ever cried there'd be
iron ore in his tears,

He'd tumble in of a Friday night a Haddie for yer tea,

And he'd sing to me their dirty songs & diddle me on
his knee,

And he'd sing..

'If I had my time again, I know I'd be a rovin' man,

I'd rove away to far Japan to court the Emperors

With his mates he'd belt the plates on fleets of
shining awe,

To carry all the well-to-do to golden foreign shores,

They all coughed themselves to an early grave half
filled with bloody rain,

As the people sang 'The Long Black Limousine',

We all sing!..

'If I had my time again, I know I'd be a fightin' man,

In far Malay or Vietnam, tho' I am more a lover..'
